Arsnenal manager Arsene Wenger is not closing his doors in signing a striker before the transfer window closes on the midnight of September 1.
Rumours started to circulate after first-choice hitman Olivier Giroud went down with an ankle injury that will keep him on the sidelines for about four months.
Arsenal's manager Arsene Wenger reacts during their English Premier League soccer match against Crystal Palace at the Emirates stadium in London August 16, 2014.
"I will be actively involved on the final day of the window and I will be on alert until the last minute of transfer deadline day,"said the 64-year-old tactician.
"Many clubs are on the market and everybody knows each other. The last few days are a poker game."
However, he disclosed that money will only be spent for a deserving target, reiterating numerous attacking options at his disposal.
"If I give you the number of strikers I have at the moment, it's absolutely unbelievable," he added.
"We have (Yaya) Sanogo, (Alexis) Sanchez, we have (Theo) Walcott, we have (Lukas) Podolski, we have Giroud who will come back during the season and I forget maybe one or two. (Joel) Campbell can play centre forward as well."
"I think you do it when you think it strengthens your squad. If you find the right player you want to do it."
"We have shown in the last two seasons, when we think money has to be spent we do it."
